Good Food LOUSY SERVICE

It is a shame the waiter was so unattentive, because the food was outstanding. I was very pleased with Chicken and Cheese, and would have ordered a margarita if only the waiter had come back. I could tell when he seated me that he was not going to be up to par. I am a woman dining alone much... read more

Enjoyed an evening out with 18 friends at the Chatham location. We sat in the bar area. Our service was very good and accommodating for our large group. The food was amazing. I highly recommend.

The 1st time ever visiting this great local eatery, a Mariachi band was serenading all the tables! That was 10 years ago and everytime we drive thru Springfield, from St. Louis to Chicago or WI, we have to stop! Lunch or dinner are equally great. This is quicker than a fast food stop, since they make your food immediately. The... More

Went went in hoping for a good Mexican meal and it was just so so. My husbands meal was almost 13.00 and for a Mexican restaurant that is a lot. There was not much to it, definitely not worth that much. I ordered an a la cart chimichanga which only had beef in it, normally the ones I have had... More

On vacation passing through and stumbled on this quaint off the beaten path hideaway. With wife and six children along; they were sure and to serve the youngest who were very hungry; first. All around service was far above average. Food was authentic and flavorful. Some of the best Mexican food I have had in a while. I would highly... More

Had the Chili Rellenos for lunch. Hubby had his with beans and I had mine with rice. Lunch also came with a hard taco, some salad and guacamole. Lots of food so much we took some home with us. Service quick and friendly. Good dip and chips. If you like Mexican, this is a good place for lunch.

While staying at the nearby Ramada Inn North, we walked over to Xochimilco for dinner. We could taste and see why it was voted Best Mexican Restaurant for nine years straight, and I'm certain it will receive the same distinction in 2014. Fresh and tender Pork Carnitas. Delicious Chiliquiles. Service made me feel as if I were truly an amiga... More

Standard Tex-Mex food presented the way it is presented in countless mexican places. The portions were adequate. Nothing bad, just nothing outstanding and the cook took no chances. A good place to take the whole family and small children.

It's hard to find good Mexican food the further north you get in the country, but this place is pretty good. It's priced reasonably and like most other Mexican restaurants I've been to. The food is great and always comes out of the kitchen hot and quickly, regardless of how busy the restaurant is. The other location in town has... More
